Every time I listen to Rock & Roll I feel compelled to come here and post some blathering plaudit. The last 2:15 of RnR is so spine-tinglingly good it's criminal. Mike's Sabotage-esque bass line is straight nasty.

I hate second-set Meatsticks as much as the next guy, but this is how it should be done.

That last two minutes when Fish drops into the Sabotage beat IS straight nasty....The whole time when I was there I was thinking they are about to bust into Sabotage...It would have HUGE for them to drop that..either way, the Meatstick is still a great version and the transition is sweet...But the Rock and Roll is so killer, def one of my fave 3.0 and any era jams.....I would put it toe to toe with any Rock and Roll, even Radio City....

If they had busted into Sabotage I seriously would have lost my mind, especially considering that I saw the B-Boys play it at the Gorge in 94, a moment that will forever be etched in my mind.

But, I don't think our fans do happily lap it up, I think they go online and talk about how it was a bad show.

Today's ride to work music is going to be the RnR > Meatstick > Reggae Woman. It's been quite awhile since I listened to it, but I remember it being amazingly good.

You haven't lived until you've had a robot shart in your ear and followed along in the live setlist thread while it happens. 
Mister Charlie told you so.

Me either. I listened to it again today on my drive to work.
